The UK papers The Guardian and Daily Record have picked up on a tabloid whisper that some fans are campaigning for ‘Britian’s Got Talent’ sensation, Susan Boyle to perform the James Bond 23 title-song.
By all accounts it is far too early into the film’s schedule for the producers to be considering title-song artists.Last time around Jack White and Alicia Keys were confirmed publicly just three months before ‘Quantum of Solace’ premiered.
Guardian blogger Stuart Heritage wrote on Monday that he thought the rumor was an indication that “Eon plans to stop tinkering with the formula and churn out a great big old-fashioned number”.
More recently, some fans have been campaigning for a David Arnold and Shirley Bassey hit, after Dame Shirley’s newest album was produced by the five-time Bond composer.
